BZRK by Michael Grant

I checked this book out from the library because I saw the sequel was available on Netgalley, and I love the Gone series by this author.  The science geek in me really ended up enjoying this book.  While really we get to know several of the characters throughout the book, we really have 2 central characters. […]

Quarantine (Alone #3) by James..

First of course I must thank both Netgalley and Kensington Books for allowing me to read an e-galley of this book.  I enjoyed both of the other books in this series, I think maybe a trilogy?  It did kind of leave at off at what could be an ending.  You can read my review of […]

I know many of you have signed up for the September is for Sequels Giveaway Hop.  But the reason this came about is because of the idea I had last year for a challenge, (well to give credit to who I got the idea from, it was Ems Reviews Books).  I’ve really noticed that as […]

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Feiwel & Friends publishing for allowing me to read an e-galley of this over the summer.  When I saw this was coming out I was very excited!  I read the first book, The Compound, back when it was nominated for one of our state library awards.  And I really liked […]

I actually thought this came out in August, so rushed to read it at the beginning of August, but now see that it isn’t to be published till September, so I’m typing this review about 20 days before you will see it! I am so thankful to Random House Books for Young Readers and Edelweiss […]

The Always War by Margaret Pet..

I’ve been a fan of Margaret Peterson Haddix since I first read Among the Hidden, the first book in the Shadow Children series.  I loved that whole series, and then got caught up in her stand alone novels, as well as her Missing series.  I’d seen this book around, and it sounded interesting.  I got […]

Unfed (Undead #2) by Kirsty Mc..

First I have to say thanks to Scholastic and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this book.  I got the first book in the series last summer when I went to BEA, so was very excited to see this become available on Netgalley.  I wasn’t disappointed, I liked where the story went. […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. My choice this week is an adult novel, one of my favorite authors, Stephen King, finally has a new book coming out that sounds like one of his old ones that I loved.  Now it […]
